that in the people who are speaking out and those who are not, there's a shift in attitudes, as the "new york times" puts in their headline today, i think will be lasting. i don't know how any -- there are several networks, not just ours, having trouble finding pro gun advocates to speak out because there's really nothing to say at this point. can you think of anything in your political career, where something has happened and you realize you just can't take -- >> 9/11. 9/11 happened and there were a lot of conservatives after 9/11 very wary, very suspicious of federal government expansion, expansion of powers. and i'm one of them. that afterwards, you're like, okay, if the tsa wants to be intrusive, let the tsa be intrusive. if we have to do things that make me uncomfortable, as a small government conservative. fine. this is really, this is a domestic version of 9/11, where everything changed. >> everything did change. one thing joe manchin said yesterday, after he talked about his transformation and the way he thinks about guns and gun rights, was that the president needs to move quickly on this

is the time to move forward. >> you make a good point. there's a suggestion in the "new york times" today that even if there is a deal, even if the president and speaker boehner can come to some sort of an agreement, there is the conservative wing of his party who could possibly block it. are you worried about even if there is an agreement between these two key players, that the republican side could keep it from happening? >> if speaker boehner exercises the leadership of his office and brings in a reasonably balanced program, he can pass that. he may not get the super majority among the republicans, he needs democratic votes in order to pass it. we understand that. but that's a good deal. where democrats and republicans come together to pass the legislation. don't do it just by getting the support within your own party. you need to reach out to the democrats. >> senator ben cardin, good to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> interesting, isn't it, how both sides have exactly the same message about who is compromising here and who is offering a plan. >> who has the ball on the

to say the scariest thing to me with respect to newtown was when i g-chatted my fellow editor in new york to plot out coverage, and we knew exactly what to do because we had done it three times before. it had gotten so routine and so disturbing to us and i'm worried i'll be writing the same story. >> we can't desensitize ourselves to this, though. >> listen, we're not going to. i've heard about '68 as far as what califano said and how quickly we have to move. this is different. the horrors of martin luther king, the horrors of bobby kennedy, the horrors of all the gun violence through the years, a million americans killed. mark halperin, as horrific as all of those murders have been, nothing has jarred americans like what happened last friday. it just hasn't. americans aren't going to forget this. >> they're not. >> they're not going to forget this, and they're expecting action. you worry, again, if republicans and democrats can't come to an agreement on rounding decisions for ten years, how are they going to address the bigger issues? >> well, we don't really know how the fiscal cliff's

"new york times" reporter jody cantor interviewed a number of clinton aides about the future plans of hillary clinton and they didn't hold back. jody, great to have you with me today. all corners of clinton world went on record with you about this. you point out the down sides ofa white house run in your piece saying the more serious issue here is she's about 2016, the less she can do. no frank, seen it all memoir. no clients, commissions or controversial positions that could prove problematic. given what the aides told you is it likely she's going to go off the grid for the next several years? >> she's definitely going off the grid for a few weeks or months. her plan is to try to exit the department of state by shortly after inauguration day. and then she really is going into seclusion. lots of people have been asking her to commit for events for 2013. the state department has literally said no to everyone. her aides have said don't even try. come back to us next year. she needs time to rest and relax. now, mrs. clinton in interviews has joked about putting her feet up and w

clinton isn't saying anything right now about her plans. "the new york times" reported over the weekend that aides and friends say they expect she'll exit the state department shortly after the inauguration this january 20th and spend a couple months resting and thinking about what she wants to do next. i think that makes sense. and we'll be right back. ♪ [ male announcer ] with a select terrain dial that adjusts the jeep grand cherokee's performance for specific weather and road conditions... ♪ ...even heavy snowstorms... won't keep you from getting to work. our apologies. ♪ >>> welcome back to "hardball." when the governor of a major state switches political parties, it's very big news. it's last time this happened in a big state was when the former governor of texas, john conley, switched in 1973. now we've got former florida governor charlie crist who served the state as a republican announcing this weekend he's leaving the party, joining the democrats. in a tweet friday night he wrote, quote, proud and honored to join the democratic party in the home of president obama. he wa

. and there's already article. a "new york times" article today about michael cooper about what will happen with the gun debate. we've had sorts of stories written after abby gifford was shot. it seems like something has changed but maybe it's because of the moral obscenity that it's so past anything conceivable. and so, i wanted to trace for a moment, as we're thinking about where the white house is going to be on the. everyone is talking about the president, where the president has been in the past. what the trajectory of his stance on this issue is. he's moved in one direction and quite directionally without much wavering back and forth. as a young politician he was in the area of the country with some of the strictest gun safety regime in the country and incredible political constituency for that. he was a strong advocate. in 1996, when running for state senate illinois when asked, do you support legislation to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns and he answered, yes." later a staff in 2007 of his campaign told politico a staff member had answered that question for him
organization whether "the new york times" and say wait a minute, this is so freaking far out. this kind of claim goes back to at least joan mccarthy. but at least the specificity of it. and that somehow -- some people believe there are 81 communists in the democratic party. some don't agree. let's hear for the pros and the cons here. >> one of my favorites was when rick santorum insisted that president kennedy's religious speech in houston put religion out of the public sphere and made him want to throw up. not one reporter who reported that remark went to google -- and i did -- looked at that speech and said as a matter of fact he talks about the role of religion. he talks about the priests in his life. so it's sort of like you're just -- i understand that on deadline it could be difficult, but you're just allowed to spew this stuff and people don't even sometimes use the basic tools of journalism to say really? is that what president kennedy said? >> the best line in that speech which may be kennedy's best speech was the interest here is not what church i go to, it's what america i be
to benghazi. so to blame susan rice who's over at the u.n. mostly in new york city for benghazi is really a stretch. she was the werngs who went out on sunday television. and she said today to brian williams that she is not blameless. i think there was a lack of care with the talking points and the republicans seized on it and claims she was being political and trying to be political at a key point in the presidential election campaign, which she strongly denies. >> but you're saying that the president's statements to that effect were not enough because they were not backed up with essentially procedural support for her to be fighting these attacks that could have happened had he nominated her. >> once she's nominated she is armed with the white house counsel's office-w every wise person, man or woman in washington who would be assigned to her to get her through the nomination process. but she was left -- she said she didn't feel that she's a victim here, but she certainly did acknowledge to brian that she thinks politics played a part. and i don't think there's any way to deny that. now,

hhamto binghamton, new york, and aurora theater. they aren't concentrated in any one part of the country, not confined to any particular setting. shootings have occurred at a pennsylvania hospital, a miami funeral home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a
with a set of concrete proposals and new york governor andrew cuomo said thursday he'll push for a new package of gun safety legislation including conmiss skags or mandatory sale of residents' guns to the state. that idea sounds impractical, consider that that was already done in australia. after a mass shooting in that country killed 35 people in 1996, australia's national firearms' act effectively banned assault weapons. the guns were banned and the buy-back program was kpucompuls. they decide after the law took effect the gun homicide rate in that country dropped by 42%. you should also know that 11 gun massacres occurred in the decade before awe stral yee national firearms act and there have been zero mass shootings since, according to the study published in 2009. of course, can that kind of proven policy response is not your thing, there's those like wayne la pierre that have different ideas like packing public schools with armed security officers, a notion so far afield the neerk post, owned by the right-wing but pro gun safety, require perth murdoch printed this page yesterday f
